Surf Lessons in Light House Beach Road
Surf Lessons : Capacity : 1 People Pricing : ₹1500 per person 2 hour. Have you always been staring in awe to these acrobats riding the ocean swells? Do you love playing in the ocean and the feeling of the sun rays and the salt water on your face? Then surfing just might be your thing! And the good news is that it is not very difficult to learn. Since 2005 we have been teaching children as young as the age of five and adults as mature as sixty… even blind children have learned to surf with us. In the end, all of them succeeded in riding their first waves and have felt the joy and thrill of surfing. Our instructors have years of experience teaching all kinds of people how to surf. The only requirements are some basic swimming skills! Lessons can be taught in English, Malayalam, Tamil, Hindi upon request in French, Spanish, Dutch or German. All members of the Kovalam Surf Club are local boys and girls from Kovalam and the surrounding villages. They all grew up in harsh living conditions due to extreme poverty, but surfing has had a positive influence on their lives. The key point is that all the surfing kids are regular at school and therefore will get a better chance in succeeding in life in a more humane way. But surfing also makes them proud and happy because for the first time in their life they get respect and attention for being good at something. Foreign tourists as well as locals are impressed by the surf skills of the local surfers and are really stoked on riding the waves as well. The demand for surf lessons has never been so big. Some of the older boys, who have finished their school career, are now able to make a proper living out of surfing, by offering surf lessons, guided surf tours, board rental, and board repair. The Kovalam Surf Club is unique in its methodology, because all the money made with the commercial aspect of the Kovalam Surf Club flows back directly to the local community. Our staff is being paid a very decent wage in order to establish a better life for themselves and their families. By the end of the season what is left of the profit we donate to S.I.S.P. to help this unique NGO in its struggle for a fairer world.
